New Danganronpa V3 [PS4/Vita]

Since we have more than just teasers now I figure it's time to make a topic for this.~

YouTube
Sorry; dynamic content not loaded. Reload?

Not understanding Japanese the most I got out of this was that the protagonist is surprisingly a female and her name is "Kaede Amamatsu". Honestly never expected that at all.

Also we finally get to see all of the character designs and the improved visuals thanks to the hardware upgrade.~

Hoping for a translation soon...

How do you know she's an android? She looks pretty normal to me. I think you may be talking about the wrong character.

And I can't say she looks anything like Komaru. She resembles Sonia the most if you ask me.

Yeah, I was thinking the android/cyborg was the protagonist, but it's apparently not. I didn't watch the new video so I just assumed; that was my mistake. That's a weird misdirection, since that character was highlighted in previous teasers.

Megumi Toyoguchi, really? Oh gosh, now I'm worried somehow she's going to be Junko for some BS reason.

No, Sayaka Kanda, she played the stage Junko.

Yes and she is Sonia with a different name
I just wonder what the setting is this time - is this in the ruins of Hope's peak?
Also why is Maizono alive

I presume the reason the Trial stands are now floating mechanisms is so the trial room isn't filled with those banners of dead people near the end of the game. they were cute and all but really didn't add much, it would be more fitting if monokuma put them in places they frequented in Daily life mode.

Also it looks like the game will still have the moment in the prologue where you have to go around and talk to every character...greeeaat, I guess it'll be more interesting with the knowledge that everyone is supposedly an inmate/delinquent but I don't expect everyone to reveal their past crimes to a guy you just met, let alone band together in a killing game when they couldn't get along with people outside.
That said; are we even going to have a voice of reason character in here? since everyone conducted themselves unreasonably in the past to get them here(would help me buy into the idea that everyone except 3-4 people are dumb in these games), so yeah I find this premise very interesting i.e. if we get to see how repeat offenders would try to use their past experiences to cover their tracks or how no one would reasonably trust inmates to not kill one another. unlike D2 which had a lot of retreading from the past game, there is a lot of potential to push the premise forward rather than refine. it's reworking verses reinventing thing and i'm not trying to take a jab at DR2 here

Anyone else think we are dealing with another protagonist amnesiac, every line she says in and out of text is a question and much like Makoto and Naegi who were black sheep in their class this protagonist doesn't exclude the same intimidating aura the other characters do, characters who do fit the bill of offenders. That and she seems normal as fuck like every other protagonist.

All the new characters' names and ultimate talents have been revealed in a recent Famitsu article:



From left to right:

Korekiyo Shinguji: Ultimate Folklorist
Angie Yonaga: Ultimate Fine Artist
Zanbi Toujou: Ultimate Maid
Shokichi Ouma: Ultimate President
Tsumugi Shirogane: Ultimate Cosplayer
Kiibo: Ultimate Robot
Tenshi Chabashira: Ultimate Aikido Practitioner
Kaede Akamatsu (Protagonist): Ultimate Pianist
Kaito Hyakuta: Ultimate Astronaut
Maki Harukawa: Ultimate Nursery Teacher
Shuichi Saihara: Ultimate Detective
Ryoma Hoshi: Ultimate Tennis Player
Rantaro Tenkai: Ultimate ???
Himiko Yumeno: Ultimate Magician
Gonta Gokuhara: Ultimate Entomologist
Usagi Iruma: Ultimate Inventor

Interesting thing to note is that we have a new character called the "Ultimate Detective". I guess he's Kyoko's successor or something? Also even though Rantaro's talent is hidden, I wouldn't be surprised at all if he's the new Ultimate Lucky Student.

Shuichi to make sure the Ultimate Detective stay dead.

Since Hope's Peak motto is "All your waifus are dead", Gifted Inmate's motto is "All your husbandos are dead"

From left to right:
Note that the name readings are not official (as admitted in the article).

The Japanese names and guesses at their reading that I can think of are:

真宮寺是清
- 真宮寺 Shinguuji
- 是清 Korekiyo, Yoshikiyo
-- Korekiyo appears more often as the reading.

夜長アンジー
- 夜長 Yonaga
- アンジー Anjii
-- The official reading is "Anjii" in Japanese. Writing "Angie" is a matter of romanization.

東条斬美
- 東条 Toujou
- 斬美 Kimi, Kirimi
-- I've seen Sanmi as a guess but that looks weird to me. Also, "Zanbi" looks very wrong.

王馬小吉
- 王馬 Ouma
- 小吉 Kokichi, Shoukichi, Koyoshi

白銀つむぎ
- 白銀 Shirogane
- つむぎ Tsumugi

キーボ
- Kiibo
-- The official reading is "Kiibo" in Japanese. I have seen variants around like "Keebo". Probably just to be funny.

茶柱転子
- 茶柱 Chabashira
- 転子 Tenko, Tenshi
-- I doubt it's Tenshi; I think that option only came up because people remember this. Although we'd never know with Danganronpa's funny sense of naming.

赤松楓
- 赤松 Akamatsu
- 楓 Kaede
-- This is already official (see the PV).

百田解斗
- 百田 Hyakuta, Momota
- 解斗 Kaito

春川魔姫
- 春川 Harukawa
-- I've seen Shunsen as a guess but I don't think it's that. It seems only to appear as a given name, or in reference to Chuncheon, Korea.
- 魔姫 Maki

最原終一
- 最原 Saigen, Saibara, Saihara
- 終一 Shuuichi

星竜馬
- 星 Hoshi
- 竜馬 Ryouma, Ryuuma, Tatsuma

天海蘭太郎
- 天海 Tenkai, Amami, Amagai
- 蘭太郎 Rantarou

夢野秘密子
- 夢野 Yumeno
- 秘密子 Himiko, Himitsuko
-- Probably the reason someone said Himiko was because Japanese female names these days are rarely more than 3 morae ("Japanese syllables") long. Though I think that Danganronpa should stop making up names that don't exist in real life.

獄原ゴン太
- 獄原 Gokugen, Gokuhara, Gokubara
- ゴン太 Gonta

入間未兎
- 入間 Iruma, Irima
- 未兎 Mito, Miu, Mitsu
-- I think it's probably one of the first two (Mito, Miu). "Usagi" seems to come from a mistake in splitting the name, being the reading of 兎.

According to Famitsu scans (thanks Reddit) which display the name readings, here are the official names along with their talents, assuming the scans are correct and I didn't make an error:

(from left to right as usual)

真宮寺是清 Shinguuji Korekiyo - Ultimate Folklorist
夜長アンジー Yonaga Anjii (Angie) - Ultimate Art Club
東条斬美 Toujou Kirumi - Ultimate Maid
王馬小吉 Ouma Kokichi - Ultimate Dictator
白銀つむぎ Shirogane Tsumugi - Ultimate Cosplayer
キーボ Kiibo - Ultimate Robot
茶柱転子 Chabashira Tenko - Ultimate Aikido
赤松楓 Akamatsu Kaede - Ultimate Pianist
百田解斗 Momota Kaito - Ultimate Astronaut
春川魔姫 Harukawa Maki - Ultimate Nursery Teacher
最原終一 Saihara Shuuichi - Ultimate Detective
星竜馬 Hoshi Ryouma - Ultimate Tennis Player
天海蘭太郎 Amami Rantarou - Ultimate ???
夢野秘密子 Yumeno Himiko - Ultimate Magician
獄原ゴン太 Gokuhara Gonta - Ultimate Entomologist
入間未兎 Iruma Miu - Ultimate Inventor

Also some Monokuma-type "characters", other than Monokuma himself of course. They are on the last page of the scan.

モノクマーズ Monokumaazu (Monokumas)
モノタロウ Monotarou
モノスケ Monosuke
モノファニー Monofanii
モノキッド Monokiddo (Monokid)
モノダム Monodamu (Monodam)

ohhh I get it now... Shorogane cosplays as Sayaka - that is why they look alike.

And is Rantaro the dwerp or the guy with the baseball cap?
Kinda hard to tell it looks like they suddenly stopped doing left -> right there as the tennis player comes right after the detective.

Shuuichi is the guy with the baseball cap, Ryouma is the short guy with the pointed hat, Rantaro is the blond fellow with the blue t-shirt.
